Got to admit I find having a permanent amusement park in the middle of a City to be a lot of fun. Most of our parks are now either traveling carnivals or big theme parks at resorts outside of town, so this was kinda fun....More

What a beautiful amusement park. The park is free to enter and enjoy. Rides are at an additional cost, but not outrageous (Most were 5 EU or less). Wide variety in the thrill level of the rides as well.

We did a few rides which are very good and different from India. There is one ride which took us to 90 meters height and dropped us back to 5 meters in 1 second. So had amazing fun in the Prater. The place is equally...More

Having been on the giant Ferris wheels in other cities such as London this one was a disappointment. Having spent the afternoon touring Vienna we only had a little time left before our train and decided to ride the Wheel. The line on that evening...More

We got on free with the Vienna Pass. It's a fun ride, and great views of the city. Only 10-15 minutes. We had no wait.

Trekked out, an aging film buff, in the late afternoon to see the vintage wheel, where Orson Welles met Joseph Cotton in the classic Third Man film, but the area is made seedy by park benches inhabited by what appear to be dope fiends, roaring...More

When we first entered Prater we where very happy about the place, the entrance is very beautiful and vintage. But the more you walk, the more it becomes just a common fun fair. And in the end, dreary, with disused rides and owners yelling at...More

Prater is probably the only adventure park where I was that feels old but charming. Its a bit expensive, but you are in Vienna, so don't wish inexpensive attractions.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and

You can buy online if you wish and skip the queue. We were there in the morning on a weekday and walked right on, but as the fair is free entry and the Ferris wheel is a tourist attraction, it might be a little busy! The... More

It is around 65 metres high which was gigantic in its time but rather dwarfed by today's ferris wheels. Being over 100 years old it has its own particular charm and history and is well worth the ride
